Priority #1 is… I get to keep the tools that keep the word “genuine” in our gigs.
Genuine is a characteristic in scripted media that escapes 99.9 % of actors because they are either too removed from organic reaction (because they have wanted to be an actor and trained too long and too hard) or they are too nervous or too protected to allow empathy to drive their words.
I have gotten good at finding kind people REACTING naturally…while letting words that they aren’t thinking about dropping out of their mouths.
If we gave that up… we’d be giving up the project… a giant epically, sci-fi/fantasy craziness that needs to be grounded in truth of being human… giving that up.
It would fail. – at Phillips Exeter Academy
